Why not use AA to fly to Thailand? 30k in J each way.
The Maldives for a family seems like overkill.
Wheres he located? from Israel then yes, but thats if u find availability. BUT, if u fly into HKG first then into BKK then ull find it (just a heads up).

he can go to MLE from IL for 30k UA (i think.. right?)

If you have any questions please search and then ask. PM me for detailed help.

I color out of the lines. But in short if u can find an AA direct flight (with LY) to BKK in J ill be danged :) its nearly impossible. There is a worka round a drop. Flights using AA on LY to HKG and then to BKK is much easier to find availability than flying to MUC then to BKK from TLV (as i did. it wasted a full 10 hrs of my day)

Not Israel (Moscow).. I've been to everywhere in Thailand (Phuket side and samui, including up north), been to Bali, been to lotsa other places in SEA (Vietnam Cambodia etc...)

I am debating between going back to Khao Lak for a pool villa at the Meridien which I've already been to, but has nice pools and all.. or going to Male where I would be going to a new Island... I can get some private time with babysitters at any of the Islands.. the question is finding a place that will allow this many ppl in one villa with existing bedding... or paying a little extra for the beds... I'll wait to see what the tour agent comes back with.

If anyone has other suggestions I'm happy to hear..  Maldives for me was most relaxing time ever.. I was there with baby and was totally fine... I think my kids would love..

Funny you should say that.
I was chk'ing last night to HKG on LY, and only saw to BKK in J.
But generally, you're right.
CX also flies down to HKT from HKG, so that would be the best bet.

I gotta agree to dan
You might use a few miles less, but at the end will cost you much more

-villa with 2 bedrooms is much expensive

-transport to island (also via speedboat)

-drinks (you have no shops on islands)

And and and

The maldives are stunning and the beaches are amazing, you can enjoy it even with one baby. But with a few kids you will not enjoy the peace and relaxing, that the maldives gives you

I have done both and with kids thailand is much better

Have you tried Maldives with all the kids? Where did you go?

I've also done both, and I'm not so sure... when I went to the Waldorf, had I had my other kids they would have had a blast... boat transfers aren't expensive will add about $400 total for everyone.. food I would have to bring with and a lot.. thats my main concern.. I'm just a little reluctant going back to LMKL having been there and wanting something new.. (also love scuba, and there isn't any to be had in June in Khao Lak..)

I enjoyed Krabi more than KL. More relaxed feel.

No I have not taken the kids to the maldives, I don't see a points taking 5 little kids to the maldives.

I can't take a Overwater villa and a nice big villa with pool will cost me much more then in thailand

The maldives is a place you go with your wife or older kids that can apreciate it.

I can get a stunning villa in the lmkl for 400 aa night in low season, I don't think you will find the maldives for less then 1k for a 2br villa with pool

@krabi

I didn't try it, but the lmkl had everything I needed. I didn't find a hotel in krabi that offers the same and a privat villa, that has no kids club, pool with slides, spa... doesn't interest me

So for me I am very happy with lmkl
